Alabama Attorney Files $6 Million Lawsuit Against Five SCOTUS Justices For Same-Sex Marriage Ruling
Reader, I didn't know the SCOTUS could be sued for their ruling? I thought you had to accept the ruling and move on, apparently not.
Family law attorney Austin Burdick, has filed a $6 million federal lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama against each of the five Supreme court justices for ruling in favor of same-sex marriage. Justices Anthony M. Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kegan are named personally in the suit. Burdick, a Republican who unsuccessfully ran for office in 2012 and whose name appears in an online listing of Mormon attorneys, is charging the five justices with violations of the 5th and 14th Amendments, and violations of their oaths of office. He claims in the lawsuit that he has suffered "damages and harm," and "seeks recovery of damages exceeding $6,000,000.00."
